An Historian’s Approach To Psychiatry The Aims Of The Series

This week’s podcast is about what historians do and what they can bring to an understanding of mental medicine. I talk a little about myself, set out what you might expect from the series, and explain why I did these podcasts and for whom they are intended. The series is not just for historians or healthcare professionals, but for anyone interested in our minds, what can go wrong with them, and how we can help sufferers and those around them. Madness is fascinating because it takes us to the heart of being human and because it tells us much about both medicine and wider social attitudes.
